  1. I am unable to create a new Boot Camp partition (gives me an error that says could not move files - which is strange in and of itself, as I have about 70GB free space and had just reinstalled the OS less than a month ago). I have VirtualBox, and a trial of VMWare Fusion. I created a partition in Disk Utility. I would like to use VirtualBox to virtualize this partition when I am using my mac. I had found some threads showing how to make it work by using internalcommands etc. to create a raw vmdk file, but for some reason it is not working correctly. Has anyone managed to get this to work? And in VMWare Fusion, I accidentally deleted the Boot Camp VM from the Library - how do I get this back? Thanks!
  2. would like to build myself a computer - and I would like to dual boot Windows 7 and Leopard (not Snow Leopard until Guitar Pro starts working reliably on it ). I have searched around the forums, and the few that mention the Intel Core i5 have not had any conclusive decisions on the motherboards that will work. Here is what I am looking at so far - I have serious questions regarding the motherboard, as it has mixed reviews on newegg, though it was recommended in one of the forums here. I am not a hardware-savvy guy, dealing more with networking, security, and programming: Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield 2.66GHz LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Processor Model BX80605I5750 - $199.99 OCZ ModXStream Pro OCZ600MXSP 600W ATX12V V2.2 / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC ... - $74.99 CORSAIR XMS3 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMX4GX3M2A1600C9 - $93.99 Western Digital Caviar Green WD15EADS 1.5TB SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive - $109.99 GIGABYTE GA-P55M-UD2 LGA 1156 Intel P55 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - $104.99 Thanks for the help!
  3. I currently use VirtualBox, but as I am sure many are aware, there are numerous issues with using a BootCamp partition and VirtualBox. I can open the partition in virtualbox but I will always get a blue screen of death (though it runs fine if I boot into it). Should VMWare or some such program on Windows work to read the snow leopard partition? In truth, I would like to have it where I can VM into windows (bootcamp partition), and from within there vm into Leopard. It sounds ridiculouos, but VirtualBox does not provide a method of running a mac on a virtual machine. As far as hardware goes, are there any better options than the ones listed?
  4. My goal: Dual-boot Windows 7 and Snow Leopard, and run Leopard in a VM, while also being able to use the Windows 7 partition in a VM in Snow Leopard, and the Snow Leopard partition in a VM in Windows 7. This is my first time building a computer, and one of my friends sent me this wishlist of parts. Is there anything on here that will make it impossible for me to install OSX on? Also, any suggestions on how to tweak this are welcomed - I am trying not to spend too much money though. About $800 is my max, but I am a little flexible.
